  1. Moses scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    So here's the moment when I have to withdraw. As a non-smoker, I'm wrong here. But I try to be neutral. He really deserves that, or rather Bruichladdich! The PLV is a shock.
    • Nose
      Very clearly and unmistakably "the Bruichladdich". Without ifs and buts, all the nouns that make it up. Intense notes during a barbecue on the beach near the distillery. Well done. Respect. Only the PLV doesn't fit me at all. But it was clear, sorry :(
    • Taste
      Too little body for me but everything is wonderfully balanced with lemongrass and peat and sweet malt. Smoke with peppery notes. Basically solid. Just way too thin.
    • Finish
      Medium to longer, but only because of the salty peat notes with longer smoke behind the spicy note, it can hold out longer. Almost too short for the price.

    • Nose
      rather reserved at first, the laddie character is there, burnt biscuit, vanilla, caramel, slightly fermented, very subtle only smoke, creamy, slightly vinous, grated lemon zest, some pencil abrasion, apple, very lightly also dish soap, grain after the first sip, has almost something of a muesli
    • Taste
      creamy attack, sweet, vanilla, biscuit dough, tart, lemon, maritime, the smoke comes later, but then more clearly than on the nose, rather edgy, wood, therefore drier, slightly tart
    • Finish
      really ashy, a lot of smoke, behind it almost nothing recognizable, some citrus, slightly grainy, dry

    A typical Bruichladdich?
    I refer to that smell of vomit, that sour note that I would like to know where it came from.

    But I love Bruichladdich.
    I don't care.
    There is something to discover.
    Spicy notes in the background, also cereals and a flowery smell.
    The wood itself and the smoke hold back elegantly.

    Peat then comes in the mouth.
    An oily, spicy liquid, bitter wood.
    The finish is quite long, the smoke remains.

    A malt for the rather cool season ...

    • Nose
      Heavy peaty sweetness. In the background notes of salt, rose soap and juniper. In addition, oak, citrus zests, apple crates and vanilla.
    • Taste
      Soft and medium heavy, with tender-salty peat, smoked malt and nutty notes. Will be a little soapy and dry.
    • Finish
      Medium length, salted nuts, malt and peat smoke.

  7. Cubey666 scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    Nice peaty meaty islay dram. Next to the meat there is a fair amount of pear and vanilla to discover

  8. Alterjoe scored this whisky 84 points Member Senior

    This malt, according to Jim McEwan's statement, is a blend of Bruichladdichs, Port Charlottes, and Octomores. The Octomore is for me - clearly recognizable by the myrtle and fern note. An untamed malt. Certainly interesting, although the plastic taste is a bit scary to me to be an all-day dram.
    • Nose
      Significantly dry peat smoke at the beginning of the nose. Amazingly fast then joins a very nice sweet vanilla note. The alcohol is well integrated and has a refreshing effect on the nose (menthol). Then it becomes floral (myrtle and fern) and behind it a little bit the wood.
    • Taste
      Cold ash that has been extinguished with freshly squeezed lemon juice. A little vanilla, but not nearly as sweet as the nose suggests. Young and strong on the tongue. He is still very young ... in the middle of the Sturm und Drang Zeit. Then follows a distinct bitterness. Slightly metallic and a clear plastic note. With white pepper.
    • Finish
      A long finish. Dry smoke, vanilla and spices remain in the mouth. The bitterness is still there.

  9. 11insomnium scored this whisky 73 points Expert Senior

    Nosing: Soft, delicate smoke, sweetish, slightly fruity

    Tasting: peat, some charcoal

    With water: a bit more fruity

    Comment: Overall, one-dimensional

    Have had some good Bruichladdich, but this one ends up very bitter and rather unbalanced.

    http://www.weinkenner.de/2013/bruichladdich-die-destillerie-der-1000-stilrichtungen-29206/ Color: sunlight
    Nose: Creamy sweet honey, peat, salty lemon, full vanilla flavor, maritime and grassy with aromas of mandarin and juniper berries (gin).
    Taste: Salty, peaty smoke, pleasant spice with black pepper. Fruity sweet with honey and vanilla. Duenner becoming.
    Finish: Rather short and thin, sweet, peaty and only slightly smoky. Notes of honey, lemon and some orange and peat remain in the reverberation.
    83 points (nose: 83 / taste: 82 / finish: 85)

  20. Angelos did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Peat, which is quite similiar to Ardbeg one's in my opinion, pepper and maybe some grass, later some fruits like oranges
    • Taste
      At the beginning memories of the Oban 14-years, bit salty, peat of course, some citrus and hints of lemon
    • Finish
      Medium with some vanilla and salt

      makes you addicted: honey, madarines, salt, light peat, grass, some damp jute
    • Taste
      salty spray, peat, mead
    • Finish
      Candle wax, peat, bitter orange, salt, light vanilla

  23. granella2003 scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    The nose come hints of barbecue, smoked sea. On the palate reminiscent of a sweet cheesecake with pears and peaches, the center creaminess with hints of smoke and finally the roughness of the base of a biscuit. Pure harmony peaty!

  24. Jonkers scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    This whisky has a good balance. Good stuff for both peat lovers and non peat lovers.
    • Nose
      A good wiff of peat but not medicinal lika a Laphroaig for instance. Vanilla. Fresh and grassy but this in the second instance. Oranges and mandarins and a hint of clove.
    • Taste
      At the beginning (as expected) peat. After that peppery and spicy and also sweet. Peat is prominent and pepper plays a major role.
    • Finish
      The finish slows the peat down quite in a positive way. Smoke remains but sweetness rules.

  25. D3US scored this whisky 77 points Expert Senior

    A peaty monster. Steer clear if you're not into heavy smoke, but give it a try if you are. This will never become a favorite for me, but in the right mood (cold, wet, miserable winter days) this will keep you warm no doubt.
    • Nose
      Very damp sweetness of peat, like a wet patch of earth. Some salty tones, but also faint fruity notes. Not at all medicinal so far, but very peaty indeed. 
    • Taste
      Again, damp peaty sweetness. Some spices now as well, bringing a light tingle to this. The phenols really hit at the back of the taste, at the swallow. A peaty mix of wood, oak, faint fruits and malt. 
    • Finish
      Warming and prickly from the phenolic aromas. Earthy tones as well, together with some hard to find fruits and malt. 

  26. granella2003 scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    The successor of the Bruichladdich 3D series, a whisky that delivers what is on the label, a peated Whisky with the characteristics of a true Bruichladdich.
    • Nose
      Intense aromas of peat and maritime atmosphere with hints of vanilla, pear, sweet and sour barbecue sauce, melon, smoke and black pepper.
    • Taste
      Full, pleasantly oily and powerful nature of maritime flavors and vanilla, cinnamon and malted brown sugar with fruity notes and a hint of black pepper.
    • Finish
      A powerful and long finish that the flavors and aromas right to do, spicy notes of peat and maritime aromas followed by fruit, smoke and vanilla

    "A replacement for the highly successful `3D` series, Bruichladdich Peat

    apparently `does what it says on the tin` with phenol levels of 35ppm.

    No age statement, but it is cheaper than the old 3D releases and,

    shockingly, has escaped from the the distillery without being finished.

    Doubly unique `Laddie!"

  29. markjedi1 scored this whisky 78 points Connoisseur

    I wish I could say more about this Laddie, but it is
    so simple â€
    • Nose
      The nose is, in all honesty, very simply. Peat
      (obviously, would be a bit ridiculous otherwise), citrus and vanilla. A bit of
      wet earth. Not much else though.
    • Taste
      On the palate, it is a little oily, but shows little
      body. Primarily peat and citrus, flanked by vanilla and quite a bit of salt.
      Heart warming on this grey day.
    • Finish
      The finish is more of the same, but very short.

  30. Willie JJ scored this whisky 78 points Expert Senior

    This is not a bad dram, but somehow its failing to inspire me.
    Certainly it seems to be far short of the 3 versions of 3D that preceded
    it. I'll need to try it again to make my mind up. Maybe I'll leave it
    until I'm next at the distillery; if it doesn't get me there, it won't
    happen anywhere.
    • Nose
      Little sign of feints here, but not really that much else either, other than a blast of fresh sea air.
    • Taste
      has a slightly off quality that has me wondering what's going on. Its not really bad, but its not really good either.
    • Finish
      Salty, long, a bit hot, but not in any way unpleasant.

  31. Lapsang Leaf scored this whisky 85 points Member Junior

    Make sure it's in your cabinet as a softer option to more peaty whiskies.  At times, too much peat can be quite intense...
    • Nose
      Roasted peanuts.
    • Taste
      Yellow pepper and kippers.
    • Finish
      [Really pleasant.]

  32. Lafroy scored this whisky 74 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Little fruity, peaty with hints of dried fruits, sweetness, some rubber and mud.
    • Taste
      A lot of peat and fruits, a lot of smoke, light oak, sweet fruits, malted barley, intensive in taste.
    • Finish
      Medium long, soft, peaty and lightly smoky
